The Wright Framework Now Allows You to Customize Colors

Starting from version 3.7.0, the Wright framework now allows you customize colors directly from the Joomla admin area.

This means now you can change the default color scheme to whatever you wish. Plus, all our Joomla templates will have the same feature.

We've resisted adding this feature in the past because we wanted to keep Wright as lightweight as possible. However, we listen to Joomlashack customers and this is a frequently requested feature. We will continue to expand on this feature in the next few weeks and months,

How to change the default color scheme

If you are using the Wright template, be sure you are using version 3.7.0 or newer. 

  • Go to Extensions > Templates > js_wright 
  • Choose "Custom" as Style

Important: every time you select different colors for the custom style, is required to save changes first. Then click "Compile LESS to CSS" button to rebuild the style.

Please note that some browsers hard-cache the CSS, especially Chrome. If you don't see the changes reflected immediately, you may need to clear cache.

Custom colors for all the Joomlashack templates

At the time of writing this post, only the main Wright framework has complete support for this feature. However, we're working quickly to allow custom colors in the rest of our templates.

Feedback

We hope to soon expand these color-picker features so it's available for more specific areas of Joomlashack templates.
